China’s goods are colorful, cheap, which is universally recognized. Australia, relative to China, the material, especially the daily necessities are in lack of production capacity, so a lot rely on imports, especially from China. So how do you carry out trade in Australia and China.
Before you do business, first of all to determine their role in positioning. Australia’s businessman there are two forms: Small business, also known as sole trader, another is the owner, which is only one person’s business.

To register a sole trader, in fact, to register needs two things: business name and Australian Business Number (ABN).

If your business is insolvent and bankrupt, and all the assets in the business are used for repayment, you are still entitled to pursue your personal property. In other words, this business is not an independent legal entity.
